The whole Usman Mirza incident is so disturbing, we've predators roaming freely among us while authorities continue to sleep until the civil society highlights the issue and force authorities to arrest them. Yet people question why women feel unsafe here? #ArrestUsmanMirza

Now, another woman has come forward with the harassment allegations against Usman Mirza. She said Usman Mirza got her details; phone number and home address from social media. He threatened to show up at her home if she turned down his offer of “friendship.”
The woman said she filed complaints against him with FIA’s Cyber Crime Cell but no action was taken against him.
Victims press charges against Usman Mirza
Meanwhile, according to media reports, Usman Mirza took 1.1 million rupees from the Islamabad couple after filming them for two and a half hours. The police have sought an extension in the physical remand of the suspects.
On the other hand, the victims have also decided to pursue the case against Usman Mirza. The details were shared by the government lawyer representing the couple in the case.
“Usman Mirza and accomplices have spent six days in remand and police have recovered two mobile phones and a pistol from the prime suspect’s custody,” the government lawyer said.
He added that the victims have recorded their statements before the magistrate sharing that the suspects received 1,125,000 rupees from the victims. “The suspects undressed the girl and touched her inappropriately during the video,” the lawyer said.
The lawyer further informed that section 375 has been added in the case which can lead to either life imprisonment or the death penalty.
Arrest is just not enough. Incidents like these will keep on happening until perpetrators and scums like Usman Mirza aren’t given proper punishments for their acts. This is another test case for the protagonists of Riyasat-e-Madina.
